Drama / Characters:1 male, 1 femaleScenery: InteriorA couple sit at opposite ends of a table reminiscing about their life together. Each has a point of view and they rarely address each other directly. They are young to begin with, then middle aged, then old, then one dies. The anecdotes they relate are both humorous and tragic. Their lives seem wasted, yet the wife's muted final gesture of affection conveys a love that endured through years of bickering. A critical success in London, Ireland and the author's native South Africa. A minute tapestry cross stitched with rich detail– invested with a strong strain of uncomfortable truths.– Irish Times.
